I propose a new and unique solution to the power war: Create a member ran power syndicate/alliance!
Here are the details:
Player(s?) will act as "Chief Power and Market Control Officer"
There will be a external forum for communications and transaction recording.
All members will be active in voting in Alliance operations.
Power Producing Member Companies wrote:Would sell all their power to their Chief Officer via Contract
Price would be ~85% Market price
10% goes to cover market posting fee
5% goes to finance market control operations(Variable%)
Player would rest assured knowing his power would always be bought for a stable(not fixed) price
Chief Officers wrote:Would accept all contracts from Alliance members
Will keep records of all transactions(publicly visible on forum)
Will post offers on market once per day or as needed for members' collective power.
Will use the Bank% to purchase power below the Alliances' price
Will deposit weekly budget surplus in the in game bank, and report Balances, Profit & Losses to the Alliance forum
I believe this is the only way to attain power market stabilityAll Member Companies will vote on wrote:Set Market Price of Alliances' Power
Set Bank% based on demands placed on bank by market fluctuations
Vote Chief Officers in and out as members see fit.
I realize a war will break out about 3 lines below this. I ask only this: Please keep your criticisms civil and constructive. All aspects of this are open to discussion such as: Would members get 1 vote each, or 1 vote per 1 million power produced? Etc.Details, ranting, general ramblings wrote: There may be a need for more than one of these "chiefs" to diversify our risk. Also it may be necessary to pay something like .5-1% to them for doing all the hard work. These are unknowns. When we buy power posted below our voted upon price, the company selling the power should receive a pre-written Recruiting letter, inviting him/her to join the Alliance. All power transactions would be screenshotted and arranged through the forums to provide for accountability from both sides. Again if many people join there would be nned to be sub-forums (Ex: 9 producers 20 million power/day each, 1 "Chief" who manages this groups power). All groups vote together, and the rules are the same for all groups.
I can say this will work, it has worked, and does work in several other browser game economies I participate in.
Why do we need a power conglomerate?
The water market sells at 95.61% of NPC price.
The stone market sells at 97.95% of NPC price.
Only POWER sells for 74.13% of NPC price.
